Early this month (March 8, 2017), FoxNews.com published a piece on “The 5 Most Popular Plastic Surgeries For Men” by Stephanie Bucklin, which was based on the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s statistics on the most popular plastic surgery procedures of 2016. One of the top procedures for men was male breast reduction (gynecomastia surgery).

In my Beverly Hills practice, I am presented often with men who are looking to restore a more naturally masculine appearance to their chest. Gynecomastia is a very common occurrence among men; however, there isn’t one single cause for this condition. There are several factors that have been studied that may cause gynecomastia, including a high level of estrogen, Klinefelter Syndrome (chromosomal abnormality), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland), aging (causes low levels of testosterone), and steroids, which can manipulate testosterone and estrogen levels.

The great news is we can treat this condition in a discreet and relatively painless manner. If you have gynecomastia, don’t let it keep you from feeling confident.
